Gateway Programme

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs E. Harvey

WHAT IS THE GATEWAY PROGRAMME?  Gateway is a flexible, individualised learning and work placement programme designed to work together with in-school learning in order to assist students' career goals.  Acceptance onto the programme is through an application process which includes an interview with the Gateway Coordinator. 

There are two parts to the Gateway Programme:

Learning:  Standards gained by in-school learning, external short courses and/or individualised self-directed learning packages with support from tertiary providers, industry specialists and the Gateway Coordinator. Standards listed below are an EXAMPLE ONLY.

Work Placement:  Students will attend a work placement, in an industry of their choice, for one day per week during school term times, for between 2 to 10 weeks.

Students gain school/work/life balance skills with a focus on employability skills. The Gateway Programme assists students to make decisions about future careers and tertiary study options. There are possibilities of part-time and fulltime work as well as apprenticeship opportunities.

DISCLAIMER:  As the Gateway Programme is a flexible, individualised student learning and work placement programme, standards offered and work placements may vary.
